TECHNICAL FIELD

The invention relates to conveyor belt cleaning systems. More particularly, the present invention is directed to an improved conveyor belt scraper blade and assembly.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

In the art of mining, conveyor belts are used to receive, transport, and deliver mined substances such as coal, ore, and the like from one location to another. For example, conveyor belts may be used to carry mined material out of a mine and deliver it to a location external to the mine such as a holding area or transport vehicle. Conveyor belts may also be employed for carrying materials between processes. These belts can be extremely long and can move the material at high linear speeds.

Typically, driving mechanisms such as motorized wheels or pulleys are used to transfer movement to the conveyor belts. Generally, one driving mechanism is located at an entry end of the conveyor belt where material are received onto the belt and another driving mechanism is located at a delivery end of the belt where the mined material is deposited from the belt to an external location. One of the driving mechanisms may be free-wheeling if the appropriate to the specific use.

During the transfer process, it is not uncommon for mined material residue to adhere, cling, or remain on the belt as the belt makes its return to the entry end from the delivery end, subsequent to the bulk of the transported material being deposited from the belt.

The process is somewhat complicated in high dust applications such as coal mining because the liquid is often used to suppress dust. The liquid causes increased residue to build on the conveyor belt. This material can transfer to and build up on pulleys, rollers, idlers, and bearings. This build up of material causes excessive wear at a minimum and can cause seizing in bearings and may lead to fires, a catastrophic result. The mined material can have huge fluctuations on moisture content (% water), and water is often added to the coal during the mining/handling processes.

Belt scrapers are often employed to remove this material from the conveyor belts to prevent the transfer to other elements of the conveying system, thereby preventing damage to those elements. Scraper blades are attached to a tensioner unit which is used to maintain contact between the scraper blades and the belt, typically at delivery end wheel or on the return run of the belt. The dynamic nature of the environment and the abrasive nature of the materials being carried by the endless belt require belt scrapers that are durable and that can be maintained in contact with the belt with consistent pressure. The belt scrapers are expendable elements of the system and any economy that can be achieved with the belt scrapers is an improvement in the economic efficiency of the system.

The present invention is provided to solve the problems discussed above and other problems, and to provide advantages and aspects not provided by prior conveyor belt cleaner scraper blades and assemblies of this type. A full discussion of the features and advantages of the present invention is deferred to the following detailed description, which proceeds with reference to the accompanying drawings.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

While this invention is susceptible of embodiments in many different forms, there is shown in the drawings and will herein be described in detail preferred embodiments of the invention with the understanding that the present disclosure is to be considered as an exemplification of the principles of the invention and is not intended to limit the broad aspect of the invention to the embodiments illustrated.

Referring to FIGS. 1-7, a conveyor belt cleaning assembly 10 of the present invention is illustrated. The assembly 10 includes a scraper blade 14 attached to an elongate shaft 18 that is adapted to be rotatably mounted to a support member at each end and that is adapted to be selectively rotated about an axis 50 running lengthwise through the shaft 18. Rotation or at least partial rotation is controlled by a tensioner 22 having adjustable, spring-loaded biasing units 26 located at opposing ends of the shaft 18 and attached thereto. A mounting member 30 is fixedly attached to the shaft 18 and extends outwardly therefrom, preferably in the form of a fin-like structure extending radially outwardly from the shaft 18. The mounting member 22 has apertures for receiving a fastener, such as a bolt, pin, cotter key, or the like, for attachment with the scraper blade 14.

The scraper blade 14 is removably attached to the mounting member 30 such that the blade 14 extends radially outwardly from the shaft 18. A purpose of the scraper blade 14 is, when biased or spring-loaded against a moving conveyor, the blade 14 frictionally engages the conveyor belt 100 to liberate or free materials adhered to the belt 100. Blade engagement with the belt 100 is illustrated in, for example, FIG. 13.

The scraper blade 14 comprises a blade body which may be manufactured from a polyurethane or rubber of reasonable flexibility and rigidity. The blade 14 may comprise a plurality of substantially identical horizontally aligned segments; however, the blade of the present invention is preferably a unitary member having a length generally shorter than the shaft 18 and a height sufficient to contact a conveyor belt during use while providing a sufficient useful life with a desired amount of deflection. Accordingly, the height of the blade 14 may be varied depending on design parameters and need. It is contemplated that the height of the blade may vary from about 5.0 inches to about 20 inches, a more preferably from about 5.8 inches to about 14.6 inches. The blade 14 is a generally arcuate shape extending upwardly from a base portion 34 through an intermediate portion 38 and terminating at terminal end 42.

The base portion 34 is adapted to be removably attached to the mounting member 22. Accordingly, the base portion has a slot 46 for receiving the mounting member 22. The slot 46 is generally defined by an aluminum extrusion 48 imbedded in the base portion 34. In one embodiment, the slot 46 has an additional opening 54 extending outwardly from a main slot portion for receiving a complimentary leg 58 extending outwardly from the mounting member 22. In another embodiment, the slot has a plurality of openings 54 for receiving an equal number of complimentary legs 58 extending outwardly from the mounting member 22. In an embodiment illustrated in FIG. 12, the slot 54 and the openings 54 form a T-shape or mushroom-shape, and the mounting member 22 has an equal number of legs 58 for seating within the openings 54.

The intermediate portion 38 has a lengthwise neck 62 of reduced thickness of the blade material. A front or leading surface 66 may be generally smooth and extends arcuately and upwardly from the neck 62 to the terminal end 42. A rear or trailing surface 70 is opposite the front surface 66 and extends upwardly and arcuately from the neck 62 to the terminal end 42. The rear surface 70 is generally scalloped having a plurality of lengthwise arcuate surfaces 74 a lengthwise scalloped appearance. Each arcuate surface 74 may be substantially formed by an arc of a circle or other suitable conic section when viewed in cross-section. Preferably, each arcuate surface 74 forms an outwardly convex surface which is joined to an adjacent arcuate surface 74 by an inwardly concave surface 76. The rear surface 70 ends at an upper most edge point of the terminal end 42, such that, from the rear view, the terminal end 42 of the blade 14 is no more than a line 78.

The terminal end 42 has a scraping surface 82 extending downwardly from the edge 78 at the uppermost portion of the rear surface 70. The scraping surface 82 is also angled greater than 0° relative to a vertical axis intersecting the edge 78. The scraping surface 82 terminates at a lower edge 86 located at an uppermost portion of the front or leading surface 66 of the blade 14.

Stated another way, a blade 14 of the present invention has a unique blade design. The unique blade design comprises a polyurethane or rubber blade body (a reasonably flexible member) which extends lengthwise along a longitudinal axis and an aluminum extrusion or rigid insert piece for mounting on the cross member or shaft 18. A cross member mounting allows the blade body to be actuated against a conveyor belt 100 and scrape material that adheres to the exterior of the belt 100 in material handling applications. This removes carry-back material from the belt 100. Carry-back material is material that adheres to the belt as it traverses from the carrying side to the return side.

The blade body consists of a base region 34 having an embedded rigid mounting member 48, generally a metallic member, preferably an aluminum extrusion. The embedded rigid mounting member 48 may also be produced from a steel, polymer, plastic, ceramic, or the like. The blade body has a narrowing cross section (the neck 62) near the base region 34 that allows for preferential flexing and bending during operation to minimize differential pressure at the belt contact point, minimizing belt indentation. The blade body has a scalloped outer profile consisting of series of alternating convex and concave segments. The segments provide a visual indication of wear life remaining on the blade 14 because as the blade 14 wears, the friction between the scraping surface 82 and the belt 100 causes removal of the blade body which reduces the number of segments over time. Thus, the upper edge 78 marking the terminal end 42 from the intermediate section 48 on the trailing surface 70 changes over time with use moving downwardly towards the base 34 and decreasing the number of outwardly convex segments and reducing the height of the trailing surface 70. The lower edge 86 may undergo the same movement downwardly towards the base 34 as the blade wears, thus reducing the height of the leading surface 66.

The scraping surface 82 has a variable cleaning/contact angle φ. This allows a renewable or variable tip to prevent blade splitting and has a variable cross-section to “smooth out” tensioning variation. The scallops of the scalloped surface, e.g. the alternating convex and concave surfaces or segments, provide a variable area which smoothes out peaks and valleys of mechanical pressure application by giving slight variations in contact across area/cross section. Thus, an important aspect of the invention is a slightly varying cross-sectional width along the height of intermediate portion of the blade and the terminal end as the blade undergoes wear, as it follows that as wear occurs the terminal end migrates downwardly relative to, and at the expense of, the height of the intermediate portion. The scraping surface 82 further has an offset inner profile giving the blade body a reasonably constant cross-section from the scraping surface 82 back to the trailing surface 70 during its usable life. The variable contact angle φ may be increased over time and is measured from a generally horizontal axis drawn perpendicular to the tangent at the location on the belt where a new blade's upper edge 78 engages the belt 100 when initially placed into service. The angle φ can be varied from less than 25° to greater than 50°, preferably from 0° to 50°. (See FIG. 18). The scraping surface 82 also has a profiled tip, which is tapered for initial contact against the conveyor belt 100 and allows for gradual wear in that ensures good surface contact is attained and maintained.

FIGS. 13-15 illustrate the forces acting the blade 14 and a means for adjusting the force using an existing tensioning device 88. A resultant force FR is the product of a force FM provided by the carry-over material on the belt 100 and a normal force FN provided by a setting F2 variable by adjusting a spring-loaded nut 90 on the existing tensioner 88. Thus, the magnitude and direction of the resultant force FR vector can be varied by a control on the tensioner 88 to optimize performance of the blade 14.

The tensioner 22 is provided for, among other things, supporting the shaft 18, biasing the blade 14 against the conveyor belt 100 (counterclockwise in the embodiment illustrated in FIGS. 1-7), and adjusting the force and angle with which a scraping surface 82 strikes or engages the belt 100. Once the blade 14 is spent, the tensioner 22 rotates the spent blade 14 through a contact zone with the belt 100 to a position such that the blade 18 is spaced from any contact with the belt 100 as illustrated in FIGS. 15 and 16.

The terms “first,” “second,” “upper,” “lower,” “top,” “bottom,” etc., when used, are for illustrative purposes relative to other elements only and are not intended to limit the embodiments in any way. The term “plurality” as used herein is intended to indicate any number greater than one, either disjunctively or conjunctively as necessary, up to an infinite number. The terms “joined,” “attached,” and/or “connected” as used herein are intended to put or bring two elements together so as to form a unit, and any number of elements, devices, fasteners, etc. may be provided between the joined or connected elements unless otherwise specified by the use of the term “directly” and/or supported by the drawings.

While the specific embodiments have been illustrated and described, numerous modifications come to mind without significantly departing from the spirit of the invention, and the scope of protection is only limited by the scope of the accompanying Claims.
